Specialty: First Generation Professionals

"What's your niche?"

To start, you should know that I absolutely love being a therapist. Therapy is about self-care, healing and self-reflection. So when I think about who my ideal client is or who I connect with the most, it’s always clients who I have shared experiences with. I’m a first generation Latina, first generation college graduate and professional. Being at the intersection of race, class and gender gives me a unique perspective about what ‘First Gens’ go through not only through the educational system or professions, but also the experience of being at the border or margin of what’s expected given various roles.

I invite First Gens to my practice to help heal, understand, and validate their experiences all (and always) through a trauma and cultural lens. You, your layers and your experiences matter.
